Today's Task

Exercise! Get moving! Work off that pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes! Work off the Christmas cookies you'll be baking next week!

Yes, now. Don't wait until January 1. I read recently that it's better to start something new (like a new exercise program) when your schedule is already in flux because that will cause you to be more deliberate and thoughtful about it. So, what better time to start an exercise program than the month in between the 2 biggest eating holidays of the year?

My usual exercise pattern is 30 minutes on the gazelle and occasionally throwing in a little strength training. I need to kick up the strength training routine now and get a more regular pattern for it built into my schedule. That's my goal for this week. What's yours?
